After a “large amount of cocaine” was found in their cabin, the two retired elderly men were detained by law enforcement. The 70- and 72-year-old culprits are currently being held by Portugal police.

The Marco Polo, serviced by Cruise and Maritime Voyages, had came back to Europe from a cruise around the Caribbean. The men were apprehended on suspicion of trafficking narcotics and have been remitted in custody, accordant to the Portuguese force.

“Our staff are in contact with the Portuguese authorities following the arrest of a British man and woman in Lisbon,” said a Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson. “In the cabin that was occupied by the suspects, four suitcases (were found) in whose structures was concealed a high amount of product, more specifically cocaine.”

Police boarded the ship when it moored in Lisbon and searched the cabin.

There they unveiled 9 to 10 kilograms (20 to 22 pounds) of the Class A drug tucked away in four pieces of luggage.

A cruise line spokesman said that it is “cooperating fully with the Portuguese police officials” and “does not tolerate any criminal activity or antisocial behavior on board its ships.”
